  • What if my tooth gets knocked out?

    1. Pick up the tooth by the crown, not by the root. Touching the root can damage cells necessary for bone reattachment.

    2. Gently rinse the tooth with water to clean it if it’s dirty. Do not scrub, use soap, or apply any chemicals. Avoid drying the tooth or wrapping it in a tissue or cloth.

    3. Try to reinsert the tooth into the socket if possible. Gently push it in with your fingers, with the flat part facing outward, or position it above the socket and close your mouth slowly. 

    4. If it’s not possible to reinsert it, it’s important to keep the tooth moist. Place it in a container of milk, saline solution, or an emergency tooth preservation kit if available. Avoid using tap water, as its chlorine content can damage the root.

    5. See a dentist immediately. Time is critical in saving a knocked-out tooth. Ideally, you should see a dentist within 30 minutes of the injury.

  • What if my tooth is loose but still attached?

    If you have a loose or misaligned tooth, contact us immediately to arrange an appointment. You might attempt to gently nudge the tooth back into its proper place using your fingertips—remember, don’t apply too much force. Our team will provide guidance on any additional steps you should take while waiting for your appointment.

  • What if I have a chipped or cracked tooth?

    If you have a chipped or cracked tooth, it’s crucial to contact your dentist promptly. For painless chipped teeth, a dentist can often smooth or fill them in a regular visit. Cracked teeth, indicating both internal and external damage, require immediate attention. Steps to take after contacting your dentist include rinsing with warm water, applying a cold compress to reduce swelling, taking acetaminophen (not aspirin) for pain relief, and avoiding applying pain medication directly to the gums to prevent tissue damage.
